"Nurses provide the foundation for the 'home front' of medical care. Patients in many settings will typically see a nurse first, and most often. How each nurse experiences his/her own life, and carries out their own self-care, might be the key in determining how well they are able to 'be present' with their patients Self-understanding is crucial in this venture."
(from Journaling for Nurses: Holistic Wellness through Words and Images, Page 12)

The purpose of this unique and creative program is to educate nurses regarding the holistic health benefits of journaling and to provide specific information on fourteen different techniques. Didactic components and experiential activities related to the four dimensions of wellness are provided throughout.

A fully developed workbook is included and provides:
  • Written journaling instructions useful for personal enrichment and professional development.

As a certified Holistic Nurse, I would highly recommend this class. Rae is highly effective as a journaling instructor. She teaches from her vast knowledge of the subject. She is very responsive to the participants needs.Audrey H., RN, HN-BC.

The course reminded me to be aware of the whole person – mind, body and spirit. I have taken pride in being aware of that connection but after this course I feel that I would like to advocate for holistic wellness more creatively. The patient components provided by Rae in each dimension are helpful and adaptive to many clinical situations.

I would recommend this class to others without any reservations and with enthusiasm. A wonderful course promoting growth to enhance one professionally and personally.
Patricia C., RN, Ph.D, AHN-BC, QTTT

I would absolutely recommend this course to other nurses! The course is engaging, thought provoking and potentially life-changing. It provides an avenue for self-discovery and teaches skills that readily translate into better self and patient-care. The course is beautifully designed and grounded in theory. Rae, your expertise and guidance brought the class to life and left me wanting more!
